Bridgeport, located in the south side and bordered on the north and west by the South Branch and South Fork (Bubbly Creek) of the Chicago River, is one of Chicago's main 77 neighborhoods. West 31st Street and South Halsted Street intersect in the middle of Bridgeport to create the neighborhood's business area which is where you'll find shops, restaurants, and more. There are even a few dog-friendly establishments where you can bring your pet to eat outside on the patios. Bark N' Bites on West 35th offers natural foods, toys, and other pet supplies. 

Bridgeport is also a very cultural and art-centered neighborhood and residents take pride in the Zhou B. Art Center and the Bridgeport Art Center. Residents also claim ownership over White Sox, as Guaranteed Rate Field is just a few steps outside the neighborhood. With plenty to do in Bridgeport, you and your dog will have a real taste of Chicago.

Bridgeport is a large neighborhood with many diverse areas. While many of the roads and sidewalks are flat, there are hills and inclines, especially near the river and Bridgeport's major parks. This offers a good mix of hills and flat land to walk if you're looking for a more challenging or easygoing walk for your pup to enjoy. While you can't fully walk along the river, there are several parks and grassy areas where you can stop and enjoy the view. 

The busiest parts of the neighborhood include West 31st and 35th streets and South Halsted Street. Take caution when crossing streets and watch for bikers and other pedestrians when walking through this area. The train also intersects the northern part of Bridgeport along with I-55, so be aware if you choose to walk near there. The train also travels along the eastern border of the neighborhood but crosses above the roads.

A few of Bridgeport's parks are hilly, but they offer scenic views and grassy areas within a bustling city. If you want some river views, there are some walking paths along Bubbly Creek. You can also check out Park No. 571 along the South Branch. This newly installed park features a boathouse that offers rowing training and boat storage as well as several acres of riverside green space outside.
